IBM WebSphere MQ System Administration on z/OS (WM301G)

Course Description Schedule

Who should attend

This advanced course is designed for technical professionals who require advanced administrator skills for WebSphere MQ on distributed platforms, or who provide support to others who perform such tasks. This course is based on WebSphere MQ V7 but is also appropriate for students who support prior versions of WebSphere MQ.


  • A working knowledge of WebSphere MQ V7 administration processes and procedures
  • The skills necessary to perform basic WebSphere MQ V7 administration tasks in a distributed environment, which can be obtained through practical experience or by successfully completing one of the IBM WebSphere MQ V7 System Administration courses (WM201/VM201 for Windows, WM202/VM202 for AIX, or WM203/VM203 for Solaris)

In addition, experience working with WebSphere MQ V7 is beneficial.

  • Describe and use the advanced features of the Eclipse-based WebSphere MQ configuration tools (also known as MQ Explorer) to configure and administer queue managers on distributed platforms
  • Explain the use of the available channel exits and how to activate these exits
  • Design the use of message channel exits to enhance security or perform specialized translations of message data
  • Explain the use of TLS/SSL for securing TCP/IP channels
  • Set up appropriate security definitions and the WebSphere MQ objects to which they refer
  • Describe and employ accepted security best practices
  • Design and employ advanced workload management using clusters of queue managers
  • Describe and employ advanced client connection facilities such as conversation sharing, read-ahead, and asynchronous put
  • Explain the use of the statistics and accounting facilities provided with WebSphere MQ in order to optimize the use of system resources
  • Describe and administer distributed publish/subscribe networks including publish/subscribe clustering and hierarchical networks
